The Kelley Academy Experience is an innovation you won't find in many other MBA programs. And it's one that enables you to discover where your personality, skills, and interests best fit within business. That's because the Academies provide a series of deep experiential opportunities that give you real-world access and insider insights into the industry you're pursuing, while simultaneously promoting profound professional development to prepare you for your next level career goals.
All full-time Kelley MBA students participate in one of the first year Academies: Business Marketing, Capital Markets, Consulting, Consumer Marketing, Strategic Finance, and Supply Chain. You can also boost your Academy experience with the PLUS Life Sciences program, offering healthcare, pharmaceutical, and life science industry immersion. There is no set formula for choosing your Academy and major. You can opt to develop expertise in one field in an Academy that aligns closely with your major. Or you may want to develop flexibility in an Academy that allows you to cultivate a second skillset. The choice is yours.
You can also select an optional second year Academy to further develop your skills in the Entrepreneurial Innovation Academy or the Leadership Academy. Your Academy directors are experts in their field, and provide valuable mentorship and industry connections. Each Academy's career coach has industry specific experience and will work with you one-on-one to help you develop and refine your goals. And second year MBA students provide an additional layer of peer coaching to help you avoid common mistakes.
During Academy Fridays, you will learn core industry skills that you can exercise in real world situations, including high stakes consulting projects, global leadership opportunities, nationwide visits to top companies, and extensive networking with industry veterans and Kelley alumni. You'll also participate in two separate Academy meets, during which time you'll focus on professional development and get an inside look at major companies in your industry.
Rich in experiential learning, the Academy program enables you to build lasting momentum for your career. You won't find a more immersive opportunity to develop the core skills and industry connections that you need to get the internships and careers you want.
